## Non-integer orders [ENDORSED]

$\frac{d[R]}{dt}=-k[R]^{2}; \frac{1}{[R]}=kt + \frac{1}{[R]_{0}}; t_{\frac{1}{2}}=\frac{1}{k[R]_{0}}$

### Non-integer orders

Will we ever be expected to know/find non-integer (like 1.5) reactant orders?

My TA said it's very unlikely that Dr. Lavelle would make us do problems like these, especially since we have not done any examples in class.

My TA also said these types of problems most likely won't be on any test since they're not in the homework and not in the class notes.

My TA said that it's very likely not relevant to the problems that will be tested.
